I’ve read blog posts from @shutterbean on weekly intentions and to-do lists to keep yourself accountable throughout the week and thought… what a great idea! She doesn’t always cross everything off her list before making her next one, which (I’m guessing) is going to be a lot like me.
By the end of the weekend, I’m looking forward to the upcoming week thinking… ok, what is this week going to consist of? What do I want to do? What do I want to try? What do I have to do first? In which order should I do things?
And though I have many intentions on a weekly (even daily) basis that run through my head, I find I get distracted and lose track. I’m not always able to do all that I want to do, or have to do for that matter, because of other engagements, time crunches, and simple forgetfulness. So I thought this may be a good way to keep myself organized and responsible for the many “I want to do’s” of mine on a weekly basis.
Let’s give it a whirl. Who’s with me??
… I know I’m starting midweek with this one… which is why my number 1 is my Number 1:)
This week’s intentions:
- Write my weekly intentions on Sunday.
- Notice the little things/moments each day.
- Take more pictures.
- Take Bella for a longer than usual walk after work.
- Upload pictures of bakes to my Gallery page.
- Make lemon curd (and not let my lemons go bad).
- Make a chocolate and orange tart.
- Try to make mil hojas.
- Do laundry.
- Tidy up our guest room.
- Vacuum and clean bathrooms.
- Plan meals for the week.
- Arrange my growing assortment of cake plates above our kitchen cabinets.
- Start researching places to visit in South Africa, including bakeries. (Still can’t believe I’m going!!)
- Research a weekend trip to Charleston, Savannah, or Beaufort.
- Take a moment before going to bed each day for reflection – either by writing in my journal or documenting here with a picture, poem, or story.
- Make more swiss meringue buttercream to play with!
I’d love to know how your intentions play out too! Feel free to comment below.
